This German angora DK yarn is mill-spun with a small content of lambswool for strength. With wear and use, it develops a soft and fuzzy 'halo' reminiscent of pure angora. Elsness DK is hand-dyed in solid hues, the colour variation is just slightly noticeable. Put-ups: 25g and Natural White in 25 and 15g balls. Elsness DK is suitable for accessories such as scarves, hats, shrugs, gloves, kids knits, and medicinal warmers. *Recommendation: Please cast on gently. As all angoras, this yarn is very soft although the lambswool content is added.
